While we’re all prone to be trusting in our own decisions, keep in mind that we slowly train ourselves throughout our lives to become more and more confident with what we tell ourselves is right. This goes for anything in life, from buying certain brands of medication to choosing what’s best for our kids in their free time. Everyone is different and everyone is bound to do what they think is best based on their own decisions. If there’s one thing that couldn’t be more up for debate, its how to protect your home and where your home is most likely to be broken into.
Knock Knock, ‘Who’s There’?
Most thieves are lazy and aren’t professionally trained. The lowest hanging fruit is bound to be their prize. That said, if you set yourself up to be taken advantage of, the first way anyone could get into your home is through your front door. There’s a reason why many homes have a fisheye to see who is outside, but more so there’s a good reason your main door has a deadbolt (do all of your access doors have deadbolts?) If everything looks in place and you’re ready to feel even more secure than ever, an alarm system will certainly put your mind at ease. Your front door, or any outside access should be your first line of defense and there’s no better solution to make you feel safe than to install a security alarm system.
The Window To Your World
Glass is an easy passage into your house. There are solutions to set your home security system to sound when your window panes are broken, but a crook is not looking to draw attention to themselves. Make sure your windows are able to be secured and hard to access. If they are easy bait for a burglar, you might want to consider home video surveillance. The most important floor to make sure your windows are protected is the ground level. The lowest point is always the most accessible. If you have locks on your windows, it might also be a good idea to buy blinds, not only for energy efficiency, but to block your home from the rest of the world.
Lock It Up
You can seal the deal for home protection by the use of good locks. Any good locksmith will tell you not to buy your locks from Home Depot. Lock specialists can make more complex locks that your big box stores simply can’t cut keys for. If you want to make a cost-effective move to making your house more secure, new locks for all of your doors will cost about the same as a home alarm system from Delco Alarm Systems. Although the latter solution may be just as handy.
With all of the passages into your house, don’t make your home susceptible to a burglary. Take a step back and ask yourself, ‘Where would I try to get in if I didn’t have a key?” Make sure all windows and doors are safe, but most importantly, get a security system installed to make sure you have all of your bases covered.
